Atkins Diet: Low Carb Fried Chicken

In this cooking video, I detail how to make one of my staples of the diet — low carb fried chicken. You don’t have to give up the joy of fried chicken, and contrary to low fat diets, you can eat the skin too! I have fried chicken at least once a week almost. Chicken has a great amount of protein as well as delicious fat in the skin. I display 2 of the 3 methods that are among the acceptable coatings for chicken or chicken-fried foods (like Country Fried Steaks):

* Parmesan Cheese – Induction friendly

* Carbquik breading — I typically buy mine from Netrition or Amazon.
* Crushed Pork Rinds. ** not shown Just run the pork rinds through a food processor to crush the rinds into smaller pieces. You would be surprised by how tasty this is, and how little pork rinds flavor there is remaining. I had intended to show this method as well, but Wal-mart wasn’t selling them anymore.

Here is the recipe for the breading:
* 1 cup of Carbquik flour
* 2 TBS Paprika
* 1 TBS Black Pepper
* Dashes of Cayenne Pepper, Chili Pepper, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Poultry Seasoning

Thanks for watching my videos and subscribing for those that have. You guys are the best to keep me motivated.

    Using Parmesan …
    Using Parmesan cheese or pork rinds coating, it can be an every day thing. It is totally up to you.

    I am not a big fan of canola oil as it used to be industrial oil before they discovered it was low in unsaturated fats. Vegetable (soy), corn, or peanut are fine to fry in.

    Sorry for the lateness of the reply, I use corn, coconut, and olive oil primarily, but prefer peanut oil for frying. It’s just expensive and not always within the budget.
